Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in The Villages - Villa On The green

Enjoy All The Avtivities the Villages Has To Offer In A Beautiful New Villa.

Booked until mid July 2015. Summer is great in The Villages, the crowds are gone, rates greatly reduced, tee times easy to get, and no wait to eat in restaurants.

Rates include 2 Resident ID's, exit clean, taxes, and the use of the 4 person golf cart when added to our policy. All Inclusive. Much cheaper than a hotel room and you have a golf front villa with the use of all The Villages amenities.

New 4/14, right on the golf course, and close to the pool, new town square, and activities. We are booked until July 1, 2015. In the summer the crowds are gone and there's no wait to get into a restaurant or get tee times. Plus, the grand kids are out of school, with Disney an hour away, and air boat rides, alligator farms, and state parks within half hour of The Villages. Spend the month and have part of the time with children and grand kids and part of the month enjoying all the amenities The Villages has to offer. July and August seem so far away, but now is the time to book, hold the house, and plan that get away when the rates are so low. Grandparent Camp is held every summer and will be memorable for all generations. Plus, the grandkids love riding in the 4 person golf cart with Grandma and Grandpa! Seat belts keep everyone safe.

Each house in The Villages has 2 Resident ID's allowing 2 people to golf for no charge and use the amenities. If you will have more than 2 people in the house, you can get 2 guest passes and your guest will have to pay to play golf and may have to pay to use the amenities. *We provide you with 2 Resident ID's and not guest ID's. With a Resident ID you can play golf for free and do all the things that a resident can do. Guest passes do not give you the same privileges. When renting a house in The Villages make sure you're getting a Resident ID and not a guest pass.

Men's Callaway Strata 13 piece golf set with bag and ladies Callaway Strata 11 piece golf set with bag are provided for our guests use during their stay. (Both are starter sets) If you're a golfer, there is no need for you to bring your clubs. If you've thought about learning the game of golf, but didn't want to invest in clubs, this is a perfect time to take a lesson in The Villages and use one of the 30 plus golf courses.

All inclusive pricing.*** The rate includes Sumter County Taxes, Resident ID transfer to your name, departure cleaning, beds made, towels provided, and use of the 4 seat gas Club Car golf cart with insurance coverage under our policy. There is a Keyless entry system. You will be provided with your own personal code to access the property. This will ensure your safety knowing there are no keys floating around from previous guests. The code to the door is changed between guests. WiFi available through Comcast and we have not had any issues with getting service.

***For guests staying less than one week (7days) you will be required to pay an additional fee for the Resident ID and for departure cleaning.***

The new in 2014, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa is located on the golf course with an amazing water view from the screened in lanai. No neighbors behind you and walls on either side for total privacy. It’s located less than one mile from Brownwood Square, the recreation center, and the pool. In less than 2 minutes in the golf cart you can find restaurants, entertainment, and stores. It’s at the hub of all the activities, but with privacy. The best of 2 worlds.

There are 30 golf courses that you can golf for free and 35 golf courses that you can pay to play. The Country Club Restaurants are open to all residents. There’s tennis, pickle ball, shuffle board, and over 1,000.00 clubs and activities. Nightly, there is entertainment in each of the Town Squares.

Each bedroom has a queen size bed, TV, and DVD player. The living area has a 40” flat screen TV and Blu-ray player and comfortable seating for 6. The kitchen has new stainless steel appliances and equipped for the casual cook or the gourmet chef. All Pfaltzgraff dishes and utensils. There is seating for 6 at the counter high table. The screened lanai has a table with seating for 6, special dinnerware for enjoying your meal outside and also a fountain for your relaxation. The triple door leading to the lanai has 2 sliders that open and increases the open living area.

Mailbox, Pinellas Pool, Bocce, and shuffle board 1/2 mile

Big Cypress Rec Center, pool bocce, shuffle board,

tennis, pickle ball 3/10 mile

Pinellas Plaza 4/10 mile

About Gary and Jeanne Smith

We're 3 years from retirement and hope The Villages will be a home we can enjoy as snowbirds.

Gary and Jeanne Smith purchased this villa in 2014

Why Gary and Jeanne Smith chose The Villages

We fell in love with the location. The villa has a back yard facing the golf course, with a beautiful view from so many areas of the villa. It's within walking distance to Brownwood Square, the pool, and recreation center. It's close to everything, but when in the house, you feel you're in your own world.

What makes this villa unique

The view! The villa is brand new and close to everything you need to have the total Village experience. Or, you can simply sit on the lanai, enjoy the beautiful view, and read your favorite book.

Our first trip to the villages

  • 5 out of 5
Home was very nice fully equipped large and comfortable . We liked the view of the golf course and the close proximity to grocery store and rec centers and pools. would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the villages. Would have liked some more info on the pass for the gates , and how to work the alarms at bedside. but we had a great time. We loved all the restaurants at the championship courses. They were all excellent.

Owner's Response: Von and Dave,

We're thrilled you had a good time your first trip to The Villages. I'm sorry you had problems with the alarm clocks. We've ordered a new one for each bedroom and appreciate your feedback. The gate pass should have been in the basket. We haven't figured out the gates ourselves. Some take the gate pass and others go up when approached by a vehicle. In October the Pinellas gate didn't require the gate pass due to construction still going on and we're not sure of the current status. It isn't a gated community and we will advise future guests some gates require the pass and others do not. The pass should always be carried. Otherwise when a gate pass is needed you can't go through the resident lane and have to stop to talk to the guard in the visitor lane.

Thank you for your feedback for both items. It helps us know what needs to be done in FL, when we're in PA

We hope if you find yourself in The Villages in the future, you will consider our villa.

Retirement Search

  • 5 out of 5
We wanted to explore The Villages for a possible retirement location so decided to rent a place closed to golf, the new Brownwood Town Square and wanted to be able to enjoy the outdoors in the morning and evening. We selected the right place and it was a very positive experience working with Jeanne and Gary. The villa was new and when we arrived was very clean. A few issues were uncovered and were taken care of quickly by the local management group.

Each morning we had coffee outdoors while watching the early morning golfers tee off and enjoyed a glass of wine admiring the beautiful sunsets as the last of the golfers tried to finish their round. The golf cart (4 person) was great and we used it daily as our mode of transportation. The villa is closed to good resturants and grocery store.

We golfed 4 times during our stay on the executive courses and really liked the fact that each was rated 1-4 based on the course difficulty. We didn't bring out clubs since the villa provided both a mens/ladies set. The sets are starter sets and we wished we had brought our own since we would have liked to pay a few rounds at the championship courses. If you are pretty serious golfers I would recommend bringing your own clubs.

While we haven't made a final decision on retirement at The Villages, we will be making a return trip and would definitely stay at the Pinellas Villa again. I would recommend this villa for both a short term or long term stay. Thanks Gary and Jeanne for sharing your new villa with us.

Owner's Response: Nancy, thank you for your review. Nothing is worse than having a guest inconvenienced by a garage door that would go up and down when a neighbor opened their garage door and a handle coming off a sliding door. We're happy Jamie took care of this promptly and appreciate the grace and understanding you exhibited with something that should not have happened.

We welcome guest feedback and depend on this to improve. We have added starter set to the golf club portion of the VRBO listing. Thank you for the information and allowing us to make future guests aware of the golf club sets being for the beginner golfer.

We arrived in the villa the day you departed and appreciate how well you took care of the place. We love guests like you and hope you will consider the villa when you return to explore your retirement options in the future.

Villa on the Palmeto Golf Course

  • 5 out of 5
Location of the rental was great near Brownwood town center.We had a garage door problem initially (user error-garage door is locked between guests) and Jamie the local contact arrived quickly to explain the situation. The villa was in excellent shape and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed our stay very much.

We travel to the villages a few times a year and would not hesitate to rent this villa again.

Owner's Response: Marshall,
Thank you for taking the time to write your very nice review. I'm sorry you had a problem with the garage door opener (we all have human errors from time to time!) and glad Jamie was able to help. We are very fortunate to have him and he takes very good care of the villa and our guests.
We love when good guests return and look forward to hearing from you when you visit in the future.

Sorry I have not sent you an email sooner. I lost my husband in an accident on June 14th shortly after we returned home. We loved our stay at your home. Found everything to be clean and well maintained. The photos true to the appearance of your beautiful home. Enjoyed eating at the Palmer House and found it to be one of our best meals ever. We also had lunch at Lopez, it was also very good. We along with our quests had a great time and would recommend The Villages and your home to our friends and family. We had planned to return but due to an unforeseen accident death I can only reflect on the great time we had. Thank you, Sharon

Well appointed house and centrally located to the square make for the perfect vaction home

  • 5 out of 5
Booking on line is always a risky endeavor. The pictures are exactly as the house appears and the amenities beyond anything we have seen in a rental property. The owners have provided maps, instructions for items in the property, and information covering every aspect of the villages. There is a notebook we didn't find until half way through the stay and would highly recommend you find the notebook your first day. It is invaluable. The welcome bag was appreciated!
Book this house with confidence that what you see, is what you get. We've already booked June 2015. This house will not have many open time slots and we wanted to stay in the best.

Owner's Response: John,
We love the location too and what sold us on the property. Close to everything we needed/wanted, but the solitude with the golf course behind, when we wanted to read a book or play a game.
The notebook has helped us on more than one occasion. We tried to include everything anyone would need to know in The Villages to make a vacation enjoyable.
Thank you for the very nice review. We're thrilled you have booked June. We love repeat guests that treat the house as they would their own home.

What a nice house, decorated with an eye for details, and a location that is wonderful! Everything we needed and more for our week in Disney World for seniors. The house was very clean, comfortable, and centrally located to all the activities.
We had many interactions with the owners and now feel we are dealing with friends. You can't go wrong selecting this property for your central Florida vacation.

Thank you for taking the time to write your thoughtful review. It was fun being part of your Villages purchase and you are now the third couple to buy while renting the villa!
Once you're settled and we're in town, we'd love to have dinner with our new friends.
